broccoli bacon salad {a side dish or dessert}

I've got the most scrumptious recipe to share today! I'm not even kidding when I say it can be used as a side dish or a dessert. I think it is that good!

I know it's not the best picture but I can't even tell you how long it took me to get this picture. I like to eat my food, not take pictures of it! So you can trust me when I say this salad is awesome, even if it doesn't look like it ha ha!

I have always loved this dish but I never remembered to get the recipe from my mom. I do have the measurements for the dressing only because I relayed the information to my mother in law. So I guessed on the amount of everything else I threw in and, well, it turned out perfectly! This recipe is so simple and so delicious!

Broccoli Bacon Salad
6 cups Broccoli florets (I cut off every stem I could)
12 Pieces of bacon, crumbled (I really like bacon so you may only like 8-10 slices. But 12 really is perfect. Make sure it's crispy!)
1/2 cup Red onion (I didn't exactly measure this, but depending on how much you like onion, I'd use 1/3-1/2 cup)
1 cup Mayo
1/3 cup Sugar
1 tablespoon Red Wine Vinegar

Combine broccoli, bacon and onion in serving bowl. In a separate bowl combine mayo, sugar and red wine vinegar. Mix the dressing thoroughly and pour over salad. Mix the salad and dressing then serve and enjoy! Or let it chill in the refrigerator for a couple of hours before serving (this is what I did). And if you decide to eat the whole bowl yourself? It's really okay!!

Yum! I love this salad! I hate mayo but one of my friends makes this with a light mayo and very little and it's so good!
